BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Monday is a big day at two charter schools in Buffalo, including one that’s opening up for the first time in its new location.
The Charter School for Applied Technologies will now fill the former Holy Angels Academy site on Shoshone Street in Buffalo. Classes begin Monday for 550 middle school students at the charter school.
It was approved for a new location because over 1,000 students were on a waiting list to get in. The building has been renovated with security upgrades and wireless audio and video in every classroom.
The school bells will also be ringing Monday morning to start the new year at Buffalo United Charter School. Nearly 700 students in kindergarten through eighth grade are beginning classes there.
The school is near East Amherst Street and McCarthy Park in Buffalo.
